Great Hampton Street - placemaking with you!

Great Hampton Street (with you) is a digital space created for community and is the inspiration of developers and placemakers, Cordia Blackswan. 

Great Hampton Street is one of Birmingham’s most historic streets and has experienced a huge amount of change over the years. It was once home to many of Birmingham’s wealthy industrialists and visionaries and the street and its surrounding area played a major part in the growth of the city during and after the industrial revolution.

Today, with considerable great care and attention paid to protecting the history of this amazing part of Birmingham, the restoration and transformation of Great Hampton Street is well underway.

The foundations of a vision for Great Hampton Street has been sown and is being led by Cordia Blackswan, property developers renowned and highly respected for developing property that adds value to residents and community.

Cordia Blackswan are also highly experienced in the restoration of heritage buildings and, for a city such as Birmingham with an exciting future but also a fascinating history, this is so important.

Cordia Blackswan has built a strong reputation for engaging and involving people in their places. It is community that together turn developments and visions into places that people want to live in, visit and enjoy. Cordia Blackswan believe that building homes should never be done in isolation and every attention should be paid to meeting the wider needs of neighbourhoods where they are located creating sustainable communities where people can live happier, richer, and more fulfilling lives.
